Florida Resident Discounts: ATTRACTIONS
Walt Disney World
Why limit date night to just a few hours? Throughout the year there are Florida Resident Discounts at Walt Disney World. This includes discounts on hotel stays, activities, dining, and more – depending on the time of year.
During slower periods there are sometimes Florida resident discounts on Disney tickets, which can be used on nonconsecutive days. Proof of residency is required and while only one theme park per day is valid, you can upgrade to the Park Hopper option for an extra charge. There's even a Water Park + Sports Add-on option if you have energy to play a round of golf or cool off in a pool after your day at the parks.
Currently, there are multiple Florida resident ticket offers including the Florida Resident Disney Thrills Ticket: Purchase a 2-Day Ticket for $199 Plus Tax. Or, choose a 3-day ticket for just $219 plus tax. The Disney Thrills Ticket is valid for use from January 11 to March 15, 2024 with an advance park reservation.
